The District of North Vancouver is placing itself in the centre of the debate over whether Kinder Morgan should be able to twin its Trans Mountain oil pipeline to Burnaby.
Mayor Richard Walton will moderate a panel discussion at district hall on Sept. 12 between representatives from Kinder Morgan, Port Metro Vancouver as well as the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation and the Georgia Strait Alliance, both of which are opposing the project.
Walton said the district decided to host the meeting after being lobbied by various groups to take a position. "Our council is not one to do a lot of extraneous motions on provincial and federal and world kinds of issues," he said.
Instead, the district chose the route of public education, which may inform a council position in the future, Walton said.
